Oregon MBB Lose Transfer, Signee

In the last week, Dana Altman has seen a pretty massive overhaul to his roster. But he’s no stranger to the turnover. 

Just four days ago, Oregon assistant Tony Stubblefield was hired to be the head coach at DePaul. A no-brainer move for him to make in his career. Stubblefield was a key part of Altman’s coaching staff for the last 11 years. He was noted as one of the best recruiters in the country at various times.

Moments ago, former top-50 guard Jalen Terry announced he would be leaving the Oregon program. The Michigan native signed with the Ducks as a part of the 2020 class. He was linked heavily to Stubblefield during his recruitment. Additionally Will Richardson will return to Oregon for the 2021-2022 season.

Earlier today, 2021 signee Jonathan Lawson announced his intent to sign elsewhere. Although he had signed with Oregon, the Ducks elected to let him opt out of that letter of intent. 

The reason Lawson elected to opt out was the decision of his older brother, Chandler, a small forward with the Ducks. Just a few days ago the 6-foot-8 sophomore forward entered the transfer portal.

Following the NCAA March Madness tournament, Chris Duarte and Eugene Omoruyi announced their intent to enter the NBA draft. 

Oregon only signed center Nate Bittle and Jonathan Lawson in the 2021 recruiting class. Additionally center Isaac Johnson will join Oregon this year after serving his two year religious (Mormon) mission. 

Expect Dana Altman to add some bodies via the transfer portal this offseason.
